Commercial real estate developer Elit, LLC has begun construction on The Grove at Miramar, an upscale neighborhood retail center in the heart of the city. Located on 5.62 acres at the southeast corner of Miramar Boulevard and Flamingo Road, the retail plaza will consist of four buildings and up to 45,000 sq. ft. of leasable space. With multiple tenants already secured, the $15 million project is slated for completion in July 2019.
“Over the last 10 years, the City of Miramar has been a hotspot for commercial and residential development,” said Victor E. Taurizano, broker manager at Novus Realty, LLC and a founding partner of Elit, which is developing The Grove with capital partner Miramar Investment Fund, LLC. “With its strategic location and sophisticated design, The Grove will offer tenants premium commercial space in a well-travelled area and provide residents and visitors with convenience, accessibility and an elite retail experience. It will be a fitting addition to the diverse and flourishing community of Miramar.”
The Grove will feature Mediterranean-inspired architecture, pedestrian-friendly sidewalks and lush landscaping. The buildings are surrounded by more than 200 parking spaces and will accommodate restaurants, physicians, financial institutions and more.
Additionally, “Excellent accessibility to the site from both Miramar Boulevard and South Flamingo Road will allow smooth traffic flow and encourage returning customers,” said Elit co-founder Pablo E. Jeannot of ABIS Global.
The Learning Experience®, one of the nation’s fasting growing early education and childcare franchises with more than 200 locations across the country, has signed a lease for 10,000 sq. ft. and Den-Vest, a leader in the design of turn-key, fully-integrated dental offices and provider of equipment and support for dental practice management and operation, has signed a lease for 1,400 sq. ft.
“One of the many benefits of developing high-quality retail space is that it attracts high-caliber tenants, paving the way for increased local economic activity and the creation of new jobs,” Taurizano added.
For the project, Elit enlisted GD Construction, LLC as the builder, Gallo Herbert Architects as the architect, Whinningham & Fradley as the civil engineer, Horizon Properties as the leasing agent and Yates & Company as the land use consultant. Elit is also represented by general contracting firm GC One, Inc.
